Special thanks to John Cali newsletter for inspiring today's post.
What's your problem? Some have protective shields, such as excess weight, tough talk/body language, defensive identities, while others maintain victim persona's to avoid responsibility. There all created to save us from something we couldn't bear to experience but left on perpetual create, they morph into more than we intended, such as physical illness/distress, ie low back pain can represent wanting to back out of something, too much focus on the past "back then/when", financial lack of support/concern and more. Hip/joint pain may represent suppressed rage/anger/shame/guilt that is inflammation/burning fiery emotions, neck pain aka pain in the neck, heart conditions broken heart, walking standing issues aka can't walk out/can't stand this, you get the drift. All these meant to save us actually attract that we feared. Try Barbara Clark's meditations to release and go free.
